How Programmable Thermostats Can Save You Money
If you’re interested in saving on utilities this summer, the first place you should look is your electric bill. Chances are that in the warmer months, you’re running your air conditioner to keep your home cool and comfortable. But did you know that there are many ways you can maximize your home’s AC efficiency and save money, too?
You may live in a home with an older air conditioning system, so it may be worth it to upgrade or overhaul your HVAC to a more efficiently designed system. Fortunately, there are other options that don’t involve as much effort. Installing a programmable thermostat can help you save money on air conditioning without giving up your cool comfort. Many types of programmable thermostats may be compatible with your home’s AC system, including some smart thermostats which can work together with other systems in your home, and even sync with your smart phone.

If it’s sweltering hot outside, of course you’ll want to be able to retreat to the chilly inside of your home. But if you’re not at home, do you need to keep your AC running? You should keep your home from overheating, but you can keep it at a stable temperature a few degrees above what you typically prefer. For example, when you’re at work during the day, you can set your AC system to keep your home a little warmer, thereby letting it work a little less hard and using less energy. Also, you can use the same strategy at night, when the temperature is naturally lower and your system doesn’t have to work as hard to keep you comfortable. With a programmable thermostat, you can set up time-based settings and let your system adjust automatically.
